“Great breakfast and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2013

We dined here only at breakfast as we were staying in the hotel and the North End Bistro (as it is called now) was not open for dinner during the week off-season. Good choices for food, and Shannon, our server and the manager, was outstanding! Great beach view too!

“Great food in a simple setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2012

Although the atmosphere and setting for this restaurant were not the best, the food was great. Low country shrimp & grits, crab cakes, quesadillas, and much more.The chef did a better job than the wait staff, but we enjoyed our meal and would return again.
